DEXTER - On Friday, May 2, The Abbott Hill Ramblers, S.A.D. 46's popular youth Bluegrass and Americans Roots ensemble will host 26 Franklin Country Fiddlers out of Farmington High School.
The public is cordially invited to an evening show at Dexter Regional High School beginning at 7:00 p.m. Admission is free (though donations would be gladly accepted). This concert will wrap up a day that will include assemblies at the middle and high schools. The Ramblers and Fiddlers first joined forces last spring when both groups performed a series of school shows with the world renowned Kruger Brothers. That "educational outreach" was sponsored by the Bangor Symphony Orchestra. The Franklin County Fiddlers feature some eighteen fiddles, five cellos, guitar, bass, percussion, and piano. They are led by Maine's 2007 Music Educator of the Year, Steve Muise, a seasoned performer himself. Says Ramblers' mentor Chris Prickitt: "They're amazing! You won't believe the sound!"
It's an exchange, as the Ramblers will travel to Farmington on May 12 to perform several shows, again with the fiddlers.
For more information about the Friday May 2 event, contact either 277-3961, or the high school office at 924-5536.
